Hydro-Climatic Disasters in Water Resources Management (UNDP/Cap-Net, 2009)
Developed at the initiative of the Nile IWRM network, the main objective of this training material is to build the capacity of water managers and others to develop strategies for coping with hydro-climatic disasters such as floods and drought within the context of water resources management.
Water Resources Assessment in Sub-Saharan Africa: Prediction in Ungauged and Data Scarce basic (WaterNet, 2008)
This training manual was developed focusing on hydrological prediction in poorly gauged or data scarce basins in Africa. The tools allow water resources to be assessed from a variety of data sources.The material is targeted at water professionals and includes models.
Disaster Mitigation in Water and Sanitation Systems (CEPIS-PAHO, 1998)
These guidelines are meant to be consulted by engineers and technical personnel in water service companies to project the performance of drinking water and sewerage systems in case of natural disasters.
